We’ve got some Melissa & Doug craft kits that are smaller for when we want to get creative but want to keep it really low key too. The bracelet making kit for kids that we bought recently was perfect for a weekend stuck inside because of the weather!
Bracelet Making Kit for Kids Added Glam To Our Weekend
There wasn’t much of a mess to worry about with the Melissa & Doug Design-Your-Own Bracelets kit and it didn’t take hours to do. That made it perfect for Carrigan. The kids bracelet making kit says it’s designed for ages 4+ but Carrigan (who’s three) had a great time!
Melissa & Doug Design-Your-Own Bracelets Kit Details
This kids craft kit included:
• 4 double-sided bracelets
• 100+ sparkle-gem and glitter stickers
The four bracelets are reversible and have an easy velcro closure. They come on and off easily and can be worn again and again.
Both sides of the bracelets are glittered.
You end up with six different color options because the pink and purple bracelets are just different shades of pink and purple when you turn them over.
But the other two have different colors on each side. One is gold and silver while the other is blue and green.
With this girls bracelet making kit, you can put stickers on both sides of the bracelets and still wear them. Carrigan didn’t seem to mind at all. I preferred to leave one side of mine smooth but maybe that’s an adult thing! It is a kids bracelet making kit after all!
The only challenge she ran into was with one set of stickers in the make your own bracelet kit. The two main pages of stickers are puffy so she could peel them off herself. The third sheet had flat glitter stickers. She needed help getting those off the backing. Eventually she just stuck to using the puffy stickers and was happy.
Mess Free Kids Bracelet Making Kit
I have to admit that my favorite part about the Melissa & Doug Design Your Own Bracelet kit is that it’s pretty much mess free. Even though the bracelets are glittered, they made the bracelet making kit for girls so that none of the glitter falls off! It’s all underneath the plastic where you stick the stickers on!
The only thing to take care of when you’re done is the backing paper the stickers come on. Oh, and don’t forget to through the packaging away too! (I’m always asking my kids who they think picks up the garbage they like to leave on the kitchen table.)
A Make Your Own Bracelet Kit That is Fun for All
One of the big things I wanted to know was if the finished bracelets in the Melissa & Doug bracelet making kit for kids would fit me! Carrigan likes when we craft with her and then join in the fun. If we make necklaces or crowns, she wants us all to wear one!
This kit is great for that because the bracelets fit on her little wrists but also on ours! Daddy even wore one! He thought it was a slap bracelet at first, but they’re not. They don’t slap on your wrist like the bracelets from when we were growing up.
